Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Enjoying fresh strawberries is one of life's pleasures. If you want to try an easy strawberry dessert, try out these Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. This is an easy cheesecake recipe that won't keep you in the kitchen all day. All that needs to be done is to mix up a few simple ingredients and the dessert is ready to go. Strawberry cheesecake has to be one of the most popular of cheesecake recipes. A New York style cheesecake is sure to taste amazing with a strawberry sauce with juicy sweet strawberries in it. Cheesecake actually isn't from New York as that name would suggest. Cheesecake is actually a very old recipe that was enjoyed by the Greek people in ancient times. The type of cheesecake they would enjoy would be made with fresh cow's milk and sweetened with honey and fruit. So it wasn't too far off of the cheesecake recipe we all know and love these days. Except now, we have a special type of cheese called cream cheese that is used specifically for making cheesecake and other creamy desserts. We still enjoy our cheesecake recipes with fruits like strawberries, blueberries, cherries and even chocolate. There are even recipes for interesting flavours like Oreo Cheesecake and Pumpkin spice cheesecake that are really yummy.
This recipe from Dessert Now Dinner Later isn't your typical easy cheesecake recipe, it is even easier than a full on cheesecake recipe. For this recipe you use fresh strawberries as a base, the strawberries are cut in the centre to make room for the creamy cheesecake filling. The filling is very easy to mix up and includes cream cheese, of course, then some powdered sugar and vanilla. Pretty simple isn't it? Once the filling is mixed and ready to go, it is put into the centre of the strawberry and topped with a blueberry. You could also sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs on top for a more authentic cheesecake flavour. Or a nice drizzle of chocolate sauce would be a nice addition as well. Chocolate goes well with strawberries and cream. This easy strawberry dessert would look great on any table for any occasion. It would be a nice bite sized dessert for people to enjoy instead of a whole piece of cheesecake that can be very heavy after a big meal.
If you wanted, you could also try making a vegan version of these strawberry cheesecake bites. There are many cream cheese recipes online that make a cream cheese out of nuts like cashews or macadamia nuts. The nuts are mixed with sea salt and lemon juice and rind to give it that zesty cheese like flavour. It is surprising how much the vegan cream cheese can taste like cream cheese, especially if you don't eat cheeses.
